Description

What is the potential transformative power of entrepreneurship for Arab refugee women, and what is their role in rebuilding lives and contributing to host nations?

Drawing on a selection of case studies, this book explores the entrepreneurial experiences of Arab refugee women located in Jordan and Lebanon and examines how gender intersects with their social identity and refugee status. Authors Haya Al-Dajani, Deema Refai, and Maysa Baroud shed light on the socio-economic barriers, legal hurdles, cultural biases, and place-based constraints faced by refugee women when setting up businesses.

Discussing themes of social identity, transformation, and rebuilding, this book is ideal reading for students of Entrepreneurship, Gender Studies, Refugee Studies, Sociology, and Cultural Anthropology.

Deema Refai, PhD, is Associate Professor in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship at the University of Leeds, UK.
